Now that Halloween is just around the corner, I’ve finally had to accept that Summer is well and truly over and that Autumn is here. With Thailand only a distant memory, I have ultimately packed my shorts away for another year and dug out some of my trusty Autumnal favourites.
For me Autumn is about being comfortable. It’s not quite cold enough to be wearing multiple layers just yet, but it’s also not warm enough to just be sporting a t-shirt. Autumn is all about sweaters, chunky knits and if your an Instagram pro, the pumpkin-spiced latte.
For this post I have put together a mix of old and new to show you whats going to be keeping me going this Autumn…
Acne Studios College Face Sweater (similar) This Acne Studios sweater has been a staple in my wardrobe for a year and a half now. It was the first item of Acne clothing I purchased and still remains my favourite. I haven’t worn it for a good 5 months now so now is the perfect time to get it back in my rotation.
Dior Sauvage Eau de Toilette 100ml I picked up the latest fragrance from Dior in duty free on the way home from my last trip. I had wanted it for a while but never got around to buying it. I hate buying fragrances as I change my mind so often; but after testing this again at the airport I knew it was the one for me. I wanted something that combined the fresh, sweet scent of Gypsy Water with the woody fragrance of Aesop’s Tacit and this one does it perfectly.
Topman Scarf Although it’s not entirely scarf weather just yet. When I set off early for work during the week a scarf is a must! I picked this chunky knit scarf up from Topman last year just before I went to Iceland so it’s not a recent purchase but I still love how warm and comfortable it is.
Aésop Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm 75ml This hand cream has become a firm favourite over the past couple of years. During the colder months it can be a life saver if you have naturally dry skin. Through work my hands used to get so dry to the point they would crack and bleed so any products that keep my skin hydrated is a win in my books. This hand balm from Aésop not only does just that, but it also is non greasy, fast absorbing and smells great.
Form & Thread Socks Since I last featured Form & Thread on here, the brand have ventured out into a line of essential t-shirts, sweatshirts and shirts to add to their ever-growing sock selection. These Triple Twisted Yarn socks are the ideal partner to this seasons rising trouser hems.
